Remember the infamous picture of the Ferrari 599XX being the first ever production-derived sports car to break the 7-minute barrier on the 20.832 km Nordschleife circuit? Yes, apparently the track officials (and highly likely Ferrari) are not too pleased at how that photo turned out.
So, the latest dick emerged on Sunday morning (German time). According to Sam Preston, the giant phallus appeared overnight on the Brünnchen corner, which is next to the biggest car park in the area. This spot is also popular with spectators as it offers a mostly uninhibited view of the two right turns.
“A lot of paint had been used and it was still very wet.” Sam said in a reply to FulSpeed on Twitter.
The Nürburgring graffiti is like a tradition. It has been a way for fans to show support a racing team or manufacturer. At times, it serves as a memorial for folks who have died at the spot. REVvers, do you support “tastefully done” graffiti on circuits? Let us know what you think in the comments…
